Of a Cleanie in Progress

While Philip and I enjoy a weekend away, my parents have made the trip to Oklahoma to watch our children.  Being that they are currently sleeping in our room, I found myself cleaning crevices I rarely see.  You know, those places you shove things because you know no one will really be looking there?  Or is that just me?

I was excited to have this motivation to clear out those "secret" places in my bedroom - the one I never offer when giving tours as it rarely gets much attention other than sleeping - because I've been wanting to get this room taken care of since beginning the Cleanie process.

In the time I spent clearing the clutter, I found a small box of odds and ends which had been cleared off a dresser when it needed to be moved about a year and a half ago (or longer).  I kid you not, that six-inch-cube of junk has sat in the corner of our room for eighteen+ months.  Because I was afraid I wouldn't know what to do with the tidbits tossed in there.

A year and a half of putting off five minutes of work.

  1. It is strange how overwhelming cleaning/organizing can be! It is always easier than you think it'll be. Good job you for continuing your "cleanie" journey!! :)
